Dr John Glyn Jones of Brynsiencyn, Anglesey, inherited film-making equipment from his uncle Robin [Nefyn pharmacist Robert J Jones] and continued his uncle’s practice of recording local people and events. At Gwalchmai Show there are rosettes galore and at Dinam Hall, Llangaffo, a yellow combine harvester cuts the golden corn. But all is not so well at Cae Mawr farm, Dwyran, where the flames of a fire have been extinguished but not soon enough to save the barn or its contents.
